Robotic Orientation towards Speaker for Human-Robot Interaction
Abstract. The orientation of conversational robots to face their interlocutors is essential for natural and efficient Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). In this paper, progress towards this objective is presented: a service robot able to detect the direction of a user, and orient itself towards him/her, in a complex auditive environment, using only voice and a 3microphone system. This functionality is integrated within Spoken HRI using dialogue models and a cognitive architecture. The paper further discusses applications where robotic orientation benefits HRI, such as a tour-guide robot capable to guide a poster session and a “Marco Polo” game where a robot aims to follow a user purely by sound.
